Abbie is a rock star! If you're thinking about hiring a doula, I strongly recommend Abbie to you. I am a first time mom who was really committed to have a natural water birth with a midwife and because of that I had every question, and worry imaginable. Without fail Abbie comforted me, educated me, and made my husband feel confident. She guided me through writing a natural birth plan and helped me understand each decision and what that would mean on the big day. On multiple occasions Abbie came over and educated my hubby on what to expect, and how to help me through pain. She met us at the hospital, coached me, made sure I stayed hydrated, followed my birth plan, keep me relaxed through contractions, and most importantly she made my husband a priority. After Lola’s birth multiple midwives and nurses commented on how educated and prepared my hubby was—he attributes this to the education we received from Abbie. Breastfeeding is very important to me and like any new mother I was consumed by the “what if’s”. Abbie was amazing at calming my nerves and letting me know I was not alone. After cutting the cord immediately Abbie made sure Lola was latching and happy before she was handed to daddy for cuddles. I knew the midwives group we decided to birth through had many women to attend to at the same time but it never occurred to me I would not have a midwife the whole labor process. Staff checked in often but without Abbie we would have been alone laboring. What a scary thought! I had no idea where I was in the process medically and emotionally but luckily I had Abbie to assure me that things were progressing. Not only was she with us during our whole laboring process but also she checked in with me often afterwards. She answered any call/text/email with questions from me and continues to be an amazing resource. I truly felt taken care of from beginning to end. I had a natural childbirth in large part thanks to her support.
